GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - The quarterfinal game between Georgia and LSU in the SEC women’s basketball tournament was delayed Friday night in Greenville.

A FOX Carolina crew said the teams were sent to the locker rooms due to a leak coming from the roof at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena that left water on teh court. A spokesperson for The Well said excessive high winds caused a damper to open in an exhaust fan on the roof.

The Southeastern Conference released a statement regarding the situation after play resumed.

LSU was up 42 to 32 in the second quarter when the game was stopped. Following the short delay, officials confirmed that the game was set to return.
